The Lotto Booth in West Freeport

The game window (just lost once again)

The info displayed in the book

Throughout Norrath, you'll find goblins selling lotto tickets for a 10silver price. Each such goblin lotto seller will have a book next to him that you can click to learn the current value of the jackpot.

The game has the look of a slot machine but it really works like a lotto. Each time you buy a ticket, 6 numbers are drawn randomly for you and if enough of those numbers match the (fixed) target ones, you win some money. If you get all 6 numbers right: jackpot !

The odds[]

"The lottery is a tax on those incapable of basic math."

The odds above assume that the pseudo-random number generator is doing a nice job...

Details and Statistsics[]

  • Whenever someone wins the jackpot, 6 new different target numbers from 1 to 36 are chosen (pseudo-)randomly by the game and a new jackpot is started at 10p.
  • Each time you buy a ticket, 3s 70c is added to the jackpot.
  • Because the tickets are sold for 10s, the average return ignoring a jackpot is about 5s 26c.
  • The long term average return of the game (taking into account the 10p starting jackpot and the amount invested into it for each ticket) is about: 9s 01c.
